Crowfoot and tripod: These were old devices that an electrician would mount to the ceiling and then attach a light fixture to it.

different pictures of the same piece of loom. Loom was a heavy cloth tube like fitting that would protect Knob and Tube wiring as it passed through a wall.

New York City
A chain of lighting stores here in New York City still stock crowfeet among all the other weird stuff they sell. The store I saw them at used to be in SoHo but they've moved uptown (and still called SoHo Lighting, go figure)

Little cast iron jobbies but with a screw nipple (you could attach a metal or plastic-shell lampholder from a table lamp directly on to one)....

Don't exactly know what purpose they would serve in decorative lighting nowadays.

Aren't these things designed for surface-mounted stapled-zipcord-to-the-wall type wiring? [Linked Image]
